Amadeus will kick off “Talk With Amadeus 09,” a four-city roadshow, on March 10th in Chicago, followed by stops in New York City (March 18th), San Francisco (April 14th) and Los Angeles (April 28th). These interactive events will give travel professionals the chance to speak with senior Amadeus executives and get an up-close look at the latest in travel technology and solutions, Amadeus said. “Talk With Amadeus 09” events are free of charge and open to all travel professionals, but attendance is limited based on space availability.
“At Amadeus, we are ready to meet the needs of U.S. travel professionals in a whole new way,” said Tom Cates, chief commercial officer for Amadeus North America. “We want to hear firsthand what they have to say to enable us to deliver the best products and solutions we can.”
Cates said the event’s convenient evening format will give travel professionals an opportunity to mix, mingle and go one-on-one with senior Amadeus executives to share their ideas. He added it is also a great opportunity to network with other travel professionals. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served and travel professionals who are present will be entered into a prize drawing for one of four 50” flat screen televisions.
Attendees will also get an “inside look” at the future of travel technology including the latest versions of the Amadeus Selling Platform, Amadeus Hosted Solutions, Amadeus Training Services and a preview of the soon-to-launch Amadeus Vacation Link.
At the events, Amadeus will also reveal the results of its recently conducted survey where U.S. travel professionals were asked what they need most now for their business and their customers.
“In today’s unprecedented business environment, now more then ever it is critical for us to engage with travel professionals,” said Cates. “Agents today must consider new options, new ways of doing business, especially the full spectrum of technology solutions that advance the industry.” For further details or to RSVP for an upcoming “Talk With Amadeus 09” event, travel professionals should visit: http://tinyurl.com/talkwithamadeus09.
